From 2 September 2013 you can apply on-line for a secondary school place for your child, using the On-line Admissions Service at https://admissions.wrexham.gov.uk. All you need is your email address in order to make an on-line application from your home computer.

By producing a library card you can also use the facilities at Contact Wrexham and Wrexham Library to make your on-line application.  If you prefer to complete a paper application form this can be downloaded by clicking on the link below.

The closing date for applications is 25 October 2013.

Late applications will be dealt with after those that have been received on time, it is therefore very important for you to meet the deadline referred to above.

It will take some time for the allocation process to be completed but you will be informed by 1 March 2014 whether or not your child has been allocated a place at your preferred school.
